05/26/2016-The Check-list

 Figuring out what Visa to get and how to get it is just one of the many things we need to do. Here is a list of some other things we need to do in order to get ready for our big life-change:
1. Order the storage pods
2. Pack up the house
3. Find someone who will watch our dog and/or cat while we’re gone–any takers??
4. Get the carpets cleaned
5. Try to get someone to take over the lease to our car
6. Move in with the in-laws (Grammy, if you’re reading this, can we move in July 26th?) 🙂
7. Withdrawal the children from their schools
8. Submit a homeschool plan to the school district
9. Figure out an online Math program for each of the kiddos
10. Get rid of everything we won’t be keeping in storage
11. Buy Marino Wool underclothes for the 6 of us for the cold European winters
12. Replace the one older suitcase that did not survive our initial trip to Europe
13. Make a list of places we would like to see for the weeks there will be no work
14. Purchase tickets to Europe

I’m sure I’ll be adding more to this list as the time grows nearer!

Preparations

Under these tabs, you will find items we have used throughout our travel and places we have bought them from. This is basically my public attempt at helping anyone who is curious about certain clothing companies, travel insurance, luggage (hoping to add those entries soon!), and really anything else we’ve found that is helpful for travel and also things we’ve found that aren’t helpful. It’s a work in progress–so bear with me as I slowly add brands and companies to this page. It’s definitely not the most interesting of things to write about, but definitely things people ask about.
